There are so many different eyeshadows looks to choose from especially for springtime. You can go for subtle looks or just go all out. No matter what you choose you’re going to have makeup looks that are super ready for springtime,
1. Pastel Lid Eyeshadow
This eyeshadow look is fairly simple to do. Get a white cream base and blend it all over your eyelid. This way you have a blank canvas to start out on. Then, taking the pastel shadow of your choosing and a packing brush, start packing on eyeshadow all over the white. This is going to give you a beautiful and vibrant pastel eyelid eyeshadow look!
2. Subtle Smokey Eyeshadow
You can still be a little dark in the springtime. Start off with a neutral base and start packing on black eyeshadow little by little. This way you can start building up the black color even more. You can use grey to start off the blending to help soften the smokiness of the eyeshadow. That way you’ll have a nice smokey eyeshadow look.
3. Basic Brown Eyeshadow
This eyeshadow look is a really simple one to do. Start off with a neutral base that is close to your skin tone and set that base with a neutral eyeshadow powder. Take the transition color that is a little bit darker than your skin tone and start blending that into the crease. Once the transition color is fully blended start adding darker browns. This way the color can start slowly building up and you’ll be able to have your simple brown eyeshadow look.
4. Glossy Eyeshadow
To achieve a perfect glossy eyeshadow look, it’s actually really simple. Start off with your regular neutral base on your lid and then set that base with a neutral eyeshadow powder. Take a light peachy color and start pressing that onto your eyelid till your whole lid is covered in the peachy color. Some makeup companies create something called eye gloss (like Glossier) which is the product that makes your eyeshadow look glossy. This product is great because it is the best thing to use when you want to get that glossy eyeshadow look. Get your eye gloss and start pressing that into your eyelid so that you can achieve the perfect glossy eyeshadow look!
5. Simple Shimmer Eyeshadow
The simple, shimmer eyeshadow look is a really easy one to do. You can get this look by just starting off with a neutral base and setting that base with a neutral eyeshadow powder. Then, taking the eyeshadow color of your choice, preferably a lighter peachy color for the spring, start patting that onto your eyelid. Once you covered your whole lid with your preferred eyeshadow color, then you can start using what shimmer color you want to use. To get a cohesive eyeshadow look, try using a shimmer color that is similar to the color you chose for your eyelid. Then, take that shimmering color and start pressing it onto your eyelid and also along the waterline. Bringing the shimmer eyeshadow down to your waterline is going to make your eyes look bigger and brighter.
6. Just The Undereyes
This eyeshadow look is really easy to pair with some simple eyeliner. Start by putting your eyeliner on as normal, and once you’re finished, connect a little bit of it to your under-eye. Take the eye shadow of your preferred color and start blending that carefully into your waterline and underneath your lash line. This eyeshadow along with the eyeliner is going to give your eyes a smokier, closed, and more sultry effect. This is also one of the easier eyeshadow looks to do because it just requires one color and your favorite eyeliner look.
7. Sharp Cut Crease Eyeshadow
Sometimes, achieving the perfect cut crease is a little difficult for beginners. Cut creases are actually really easy to do if you follow the right steps. Start off with a neutral eye color base and set that with a neutral eyeshadow color. Start blending an eyeshadow color that is a little bit darker than your skin tone into your crease; that will be your transition color. Once the transition color is fully blended, that’s when you can start adding darker colors into your crease. Slowly start building darker colors into your crease until you’ve achieved the proper color that you want. Then once the color is built up how you like it you can take your concealer and I have a small amount onto your eyelid. Open your eyes so that the concealer creates a line where your creases so that you know where to follow the concealer. With a small brush take a little bit more concealer and start carving out the cut crease. Take your time carving out the cut crease because it’s a little difficult, but if you take your time, you’ll be able to achieve the look. Once the cut crease is cut out, you can start patting in the shimmer color that you desire on the lid. Now, using a darker eyeshadow color with an angled brush, start tracing over the lines of where the cut crease is. This is going to give you a sharper and more defined cut crease.
8. Shimmer and Liner Eyeshadow
Start off this look with a natural base color and set the base color with a neutral eyeshadow powder. Take a light pink color and start blending that into your crease. Find colors that are slightly darker than the pink color and start slowly adding those colors into your crease. Follow along your crease line and make sure you are blending and distributing the eyeshadow color evenly. Once all the color is evenly distributed take a light pink shimmer color and start patting that on to your eyelid. Make sure the shimmer color you choose is one with a finer glitter so it can add a sparkly, but thinner effect. Then add your wing! Make sure you blend some of the darker pink colors onto your lower lash lines with the eyeshadow look is cohesive.
